We just had our first ultrasound. We had a 5 day transfer of 2 wonderful blasts on 10-16. 2 weeks later our beta numbers were super at 233 and 2 days later at 633. After many miscarriages we where looking forward to hearing our little angel(s) heart today. We are technically 6 weeks 1 day today and there was one baby. This little darling's fetal pole measure 3mm and my doc hoped for 5. The heart rate was only at 70bpm and everything measured at 5w4d. How concerned should I be?
Hello - I just had my first ultrasound - I'm 5 weeks 4 days but they measured me at 5 weeks and 1 day - I was really worried, but the doctor did not seem concerned at all......
I think it's a very good sign for you that there was already a heartbeat - I was told to expect a heartbeat only in another two weeks!
Good luck to you - this time is really stressful as we just want our babies to be ok and grow well, but try not to worry - it's really early and it's great you picked up a heartbeat! Also from what I understand the heart rate starts off very slow -so i think that's normal.
There's another medhelp forum http://www.medhelp.org/forums/July-2011-Babies/show/974 where just pregnant women are discussing their first ultrasounds :)
I think at this point you just need to hope that at the next ultrasound everything will be fine.
You need more than one ultrasound to see what is going on. Right.
It happened to me and my doc told me that sometimes the heart beat go back to 100 or above. I will just hope for the best now.
That's wonderful news!!! I'm so glad glad for you!! I am 6 weeks and 6 days today and have my ultrasound this afternoon!!!!! Very nervous - hopefully ours is back on track as well.... I'll let you know how it goes :)
